Macht Mit Der Party

Share on Nextdoor
Some people eagerly welcome the arrival of October because of Halloween and all the candy. The rest of us look forward to October for another reason; Soulard Oktoberfest and its 2,000 beer kegs and 14,000 brats. Candy is dandy, but beer is more dear, son. Come get your Deutsch on from 6 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday (October 7 through 9) at Lyon Park (Arsenal Street and South Broadway; www.soulardoktoberfest.com). In addition to all the food and beer, Soulard Oktoberfest offers a host of bands, including perennial 'festers Brave Combo and Germany's premier fest-rock band, Dorfrockers (not a Tim Conway tribute band, if you're worried). General admission is $5 per day, but you get in free if you wear lederhosen or a dirndl.
